Keynote: People-Centric Digital Workplace Success
May 17 @ 8:30 am – 9:15 am

Digital transformation is happening in every organization today.  But the results are often more negative than positive.

In the past, employees struggled to find ways to connect with each other – today they are struggling to find time when they can disconnect and get work done.  Finding documents in archaic paper-based systems could be time consuming and frustrating – in today’s digital workplace it is even worse, with employees reporting that they spend an average of 20% of their time looking for information.  Intranets can turn these trends around – but success requires people-centric planning and processes.

Join bestselling author Geoff Ables as we launch the workshop with a look into the 5 megatrends that shape intranet success – or failure – and how you can apply them to your organization.  Attendees will get a free workbook and 10 practical tips that they can apply to immediately improve their intranet project.
